Re: gnome 2.19 schedule.


This is a true problem i don't really know how to solve. Luckily, SANE
people have just commited fdi generator to SANE CVS. So we should have
proper device detection in the next release. However, this does not
solve sharing and button event handling.

The problem with addon is : to bind to SANE or not to bind ? SANE has
already several backends and tons of device supported. Including buttons
handling. Imho, writing several backends just for button handling is

However, the problem with linking to SANE is the locking of device. If
HAL own the device, xsane, kooka, gnome-scan won't be able to use it.

scannerbuttonsd from SANE CVS use libusb for buttons handling, would be
nice to have it as an hal add-on.

Thank you for your comments.
